    How to edit PSD?

    HI all,

    what software do you use to edit the PSD files?

    i tried with frontpage and didnt work and the same result with Nvu.

    i need the software to be free.

    I can open, edit and save most psd files within Jasc's paint shop pro. I do get the occasional one that refuses to open but that's usually because it has lots of PS 'styling' effects and such that I assume PSP has problems replicating.
    Not sure if the latter 'Corel' PSP versions work the same as I only use versions 7 and 9.
    A 'trial' version lasts for 60 days use.
    Older trial versions of PSP can be downloaded here: http://www.oldversion.com/program.php?n=psp

    Even though that message "the PSD files contains unsupported files" sometimes comes up, usually you can close off the error message and the file will still load.
    Did it?
    If it did, it's a matter of finding and selecting (clicking on in the layer palette) the layer you want to edit and go from there.

    I'm not sure how proficient you are with graphic programs but if you're asking how to use PSP8 that's a whole new ball game! :eek:
    If that's the case, this is definitely worth a look> http://www.pspug.org/tut/beginclass.shtml
    The good news is that PSP has a MUCH easier learning curve than Photoshop!

    im using photoshop, the error message went as soon as i edited a few bits of text. all i need now is to save it as a HTML file and work out how to get different web pages using the same template: homepage, contact us page etc...

    Does using this PSD file result in a website that's just one big image?

    I'm slightly baffled by the delivery of both a set of separate images, and html, and this PSD file (I don't have any software to open it with, so I don't really know what's in there, but I gather it's something to do with Photoshop and I can't afford that).
